Aluna Francis

John Hannah brings the cheeky wit and mildly pervy grin he displayed in Spartacus and A Touch Of Cloth to bear as he acts as guest host to the opening round of the 27th series of the pop quiz institution. Yes, that's 27 series of impossible-to- guess hummed intros, impossible-to-identify crinkly looking drummers from 1980s one-hit wonders and impossibly lame jokes from Phill Jupitus. Who probably hasn't been in it from the start but, who knows, we're darned if we can remember that far back. Tonight, Aluna Francis of electro-pop duo AlunaGeorge, dance duo Basement Jaxx and comedian James Acaster are effortlessly upstaged by Noel Fielding.
